Motown Rising

At the moment, the city of Detroit is thrilled — orange-flag-waving, horn-honking, income-anticipating thrilled. It was fun to see the Tigers’ players touching hands with their fans at the edge of the field (and spraying them with Champagne) after their 8-3 drubbing of the Yankees yesterday, but the Bronx Bombers do not exist for the humanitarian purpose of providing a lift to a downtrodden city. George Vecsey

To quote spd: "What the hell is going on?"

A scrappy, underdog team that three years ago LOST 119 games
beats the sh*t out of the Yankees in four, and sends them packing
with their sorry bats between their legs. Remarkable. The best
line-up since Murderer's Row and we're run out of town like
Dead Men Walking (if only...)

Bravo, Bonderman. Congrats, Jim Leland. See ya, A-Rod.

Anytime the Yankees lose...Mr. Steinbrenner wonders why they cost so much.

Sorry to see your team's season end so soon. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of A-Rod batting in the ninth position.

How about them Mets?

You're cruel, spd.

Lupica said it best. Yankees "were supposed to make history. Instead they turn New York over to the Mets."

Oh, the humiliation. Any room for me on Mars?
